Extremely well-written instructable. I was fascinated and read the entire thing. You have my vote.
I just have some notes regarding perfect binding. I used to work in a bindery, and the glue used is basically hot glue. Basic steps for perfect binding are pretty simple: collate the pages, clamp pages together, score the spine across the width of the spine (makes a series of grooves that hold glue across the spine), , dip spine in hot glue, fold the cover on, clamp again and do final trim.Of course this was primarily automated, and loading and unloading the various machines was mind-numbing repetition, but I learned a lot of interesting things about book binding, from printing the pages to packing and shipping.
